On Oct 1st. 2010 myself and Cody Howard showed our films, Wet Dreams and Haymaker, at Dragon Graphics in Chico, CA. It was a great event that catered to kayakers and dirt bags alike.

This past weekend was the first leg of the Triple Crown Bouldering Series in NC. The bouldering area is called Hound Ears. The event started last Friday with early registration and vendor fair. The Five Ten booth was packed throughout the night. People were getting psyched to try out the new shoes during the comp.
Spadout.com reviews Five Ten's popular approach shoe: "The Guide Tennie ($99) is one of the most popular approach shoes on the market.

This past weekend I traveled to North Carolina for some awesome bouldering at Hound Ears in Boone, NC where the first comp of 2010 Triple Crown Bouldering series was held. All three of the comps are held to benefit two organizations dedicated to maintaining climbers' access: the Southeastern Climbers' Coalition and The Carolina Climbers' Coalition. Being a sponsor of this great event, Five Ten was present with a free breakfast and an exclusive launch of the Blackwing.
